Miners On Sea

Hotel in Buller Region

This place knows what bikers passing through Granity need: serviceable and clean 'pod' rooms (with shared kitchen and bathroom facilities), and adjoining Tommyknockers for easy-to-reach booze and food. More upmarket are the modern, self-contained studio chalets: fireplaces, gleaming bathrooms and marine-themed trimmings that befit their sea-facing location. Breakfast platters cost $17.

Use of the showers costs $6, if you're a sweaty biker passing through.
